A Trader Joes Find
I think my affinity for Trader Joes isn't really a blog secret. But I discovered a new (to me) product recently I wanted to share.
I'm lucky enough to live in Southern California, where we have carnicerias at our fingertips. Places where we can get thinly sliced, highly seasoned meats very easily. Not everyone is so lucky.
Trader Joes has ready-to-cook pollo asada. Thinly sliced, highly seasoned chicken. I picked up a pack of it for a taco night and I can tell you, it's good. And because it's so thin, it cooks really quickly. I threw it on the grill pan, but you could broil it, or pan-cook it. It works for tacos, quesadillas, burritos, or atop a salad. Or just serve it up with some beans and rice. Incredibly versatile, incredibly easy. It's like buying the pre-cooked rotisserie chickens. One chicken can make several meals.
